The second largest school in the University of Wisconsin system, UWM is a powerhouse university in its own right. Enrolling more than 30,000 students and hosting the nation’s only graduate program in freshwater science, Milwaukee is not another satellite campus. The Panthers have high quality architecture, nursing and health science programs, and are considered to be a high research activity university by the Carnegie Classification. In addition, Milwuakee’s sports teams are a force to be reckoned with in the Horizon League. The University’s basketball team makes occasional forays into the NCAA tournament, and their men’s baseball and women’s volleyball teams are regulars on the national scene.
One source of tremendous pride for UWM is the success of its alumni. How many universities can boast to have the leaders of two foreign nations as alumni? Golda Meir, the fourth Prime Minister of Israel, and Alberto Fujimori, the 90th President of Peru, both hailed from the urban Milwaukee campus. Additionally, comedian Frank Caliendo and Oscar winner Jim Rygiel both were Panthers.
